    Famous dutch football player Johan Cruijf died in Barcelona today. An erra has past again....

    Johan was a football (soccer for our American friends) player in Ajax and later Barcelona and Feijenoord. He was the star player of the Dutch team in the '70ies, twice almost winning the World Cup. He's a legend amongst football players all aroud the world. He was 68 years old. He will be missed.

    Great player. I remember watching that Dutch team of the seventies, the best to never win the world cup as is often said.
